When you use the full-product installer to deploy or upgrade XenApp or XenDesktop components, anonymous information about the installation process is gathered and stored on the machine where you are installing/upgrading the component. This data is used to help Citrix improve its customers' installation experiences. For more information, see http://more.citrix.com/XD-INSTALLER.
The information is stored locally under %ProgramData%\Citrix\CTQs.
Automatic upload of this data is enabled by default in both the graphical and command line interfaces of the full-product installer.
- You can change the default value in a registry setting. If you change the registry setting before installing/upgrading, that value will be used when you use the full-product installer.
- You can override the default setting if you install/upgrade with the command line interface by specifying an option with the command.
Registry setting that controls automatic upload of install/upgrade analytics (default = 1):
Value: 0 = disabled, 1 = enabled
Using PowerShell, the following cmdlet disables automatic upload of install/upgrade analytics:
New-ItemProperty -Path HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Citrix\MetaInstall -Name SendExperienceMetrics -PropertyType DWORD -Value 0
To disable automatic uploads with the XenDesktopServerSetup.exe or XenDesktopVDASetup.exe command, include the /disableexperiencemetrics option.
To enable automatic uploads with the XenDesktopServerSetup.exe or XenDesktopVDASetup.exe command, include the /sendexperiencemetrics option.
